Advanced applications in fields like electronic publish-
ing and telecooperation face the problem of handling multi-
media information. Conventional database systems do not
offer adequate support for storage management as they do
not provide for the modelling, indexing, and manipulation
of multimedia data. Database management systems need to
be extended if they should be able to handle multimedia in-
formation like audio and video. In this paper we present an
approach of extending the data model of an object-oriented
database system by means of schedules which allow for the
description of the temporal characteristics of multimedia
